OBJECTIVES:Endoscopic ultrasound-guided trucut biopsy (EUS–TCB) technique has the advantage of obtaining tissue for histological examination rather than for cytology alone. However, the diagnostic yield may depend on factors related to both technical aspects and the lesions sampled. Safety of EUS–TCB is yet to be established in a large number of procedures. The aim of the study was to determine factors predicting a positive diagnostic yield, and safety for EUS–TCB in a large tertiary referral… CONTINUE READING
